SoCal Anonymous has announced that the DA has decided not to proceed with prosecution in the case of Anonymous member Sean Crasov, who was arrested on Saturday, March 15th, for a charge of "Criminal Threats." Total bail was set at $50,000. Sean "Rorschach" Carasov's arraignment was scheduled for April 9th, at 8:30am.

Anonymous is providing a videotape of the incident to authorities, which they believe may contain enough evidence to charge the CoS with filing a false police report. It may also provide grounds for a lawsuit.

Anonymous forwarded the The following Letter from Graham Berry, Sean's lawyer in this matter:

To Anonymous: I have just concluded a telephone call from a Los Angeles Police Department representative assigned to the major crimes division. During that telephone call I was advised that both the Los Angeles District Attorney and the Los Angeles City Attorney had decided not to proceed any further with the filing of criminal charges against outed Anonymous participant Sean Carasov. This means that the case is over and there will be no further court appearances required by Sean.
